Happy moments

What can be happier moment in hour life than self-created piece ready? It doesn’t matter what technique we use, if it’s a new card, tag, journal piece, home decoration or dress. It’s our moment of content to see that thing take the form we dreamt about. So I made a card to celebrate those “happy moments”.

I used the bleach blocking technique that is showcased in the Craft Stamper Magazine to create my background. First I applied a layer of distress inks, I wanted to create a vintage look, so I used old paper, frayed burlap and pumice stone.

I misted my blending tool with water and stamped on different place, after each stamping I dried my paper with a heat gun.

As I took a look at it, it seemed for me as a piece of fabric. So I decided to go for a sewing theme. I used Stampers Anonymous Attic treasure stamp to add shadow stamping with vintage photo distress ink.

I applied a fabric ribbon that I gathered in the middle with stitches up and down. On the upper part I added a small hinge clip.

On the lower part I made a tape measure by stamping on a mustard seed distress ink colored paper with vintage photo distress ink and I covered it with clear embossing powder.

Finally I added my my dressing dummy and my text with black archival ink.

And so I am wishing a happy moment to everyone with his/her own creation!

I am sharing my card with Craft Stamper Take it, make it june challenge.
